Frugal Friday...Pillowcase Purse and Quilt Top...

If you remember last week here...I said I'd use the rest of the peach pillowcase to make a purse or something....
A little ribbon and a hem later....Voila...
Isn't she cute...with her band aid (it's covering a bug bite so she won't pick it)...and her backwards pants (she got dressed all by herself)...

See...she can open it without help...

AND HERE IS THE ASSEMBLED QUILT TOP FOR CALEB'S ROOM! FINALLY!!! A friend is coming over Friday to help me pin and tie it. Then when I visit my Mom...she'll give me another binding lesson! Kayren at Everything's Coming Up Daisies asked if it was Americana...I hadn't really planned on it...just wanted home spuns and masculine...and didn't like anything in the stores. Once I do the valance with the leftover fabrics...you'll see the room theme is actually "planes, trains, and automobiles." I'm going to try my hand at paper-piecing a plane, train, and auto.

Oooohhhh, I like it very much!!! I think it might qualify as Americana in the right setting. It would also go in a planes, trains, and automobiles setting. Very nice!
